An extremely rare, collectable, original 1803 copy of the poems of Mrs G Sewell. First edition. Printed inscription on early page: 'To Her Royal Highness The Dutchess (sic) of York. As a Tribute of unfeigned respect to superior excellence, more than exalted Rank, the following Collection of Poems is humbly addressed. With Gratitude and diffidence, by Her Royal Highness's Most Sincere, most obedient , And devoted humble servant, Mary Sewell.'
This copy is in very good condition for its age. green marbled cover with red leather corners and spine - with some rubbing and wear at the edges, but good and strong. Inside pages are all very tight and clean, with some slight foxing and tanning, chiefly at the front and back pages. A very nice, tidy, original copy.
